Hi, Im new to GTT. I have a 1973 Powerking 1614. It has done anything and everything I have asked of it. I would love to add hydraulics to it. The only things I have for it are a snow plow, mule drive, and wheel weights. I would like to add ag tires to it also. It has all of the original paint with the exception of the rear fenders which have been repainted once.

Welcome to the forum! Very nice PK you have there! Are you trying to corner the market on wheel weights? Plenty of folks here to help in the choice of implements.

Very nice looking tractor, that has been very well taken care of. You should be able to find a hydraulic lift set up for that, watch Ebay and check with our site sponsors, it will make plowing snow a bit easier.

Very nice! There is nothing wrong with having wheel weights!

That tractor must change ownership a lot! The last owner, and the owner before him are members here.

I can't find the post from the guy you bought it from, but HERE is the owner before him.

I am the fourth owner of this awesome tractor. If anyone has a hydraulic lift set up for a powerking that they would be interested in selling please let me know.

I have the correct rear wheel weights and cub wheel weights for the front.

Pretty clean it is! jrhaines on epay might have those parts. Watch out, as some want lots of money for pumps and controls and others more reasonable. You will need to watch for correct style also. You will need the type with the cylinder on right side of frame by your foot and the long rod back to the 3pt or lift whichever you have. Some just have a lift with a drawbar on back, not three point, but work good either way for a blade. Blades can be had easy for $100 or so. You should need the pump, the brackets to put that on top of bellhousing, the belt, which may be adjustable sectioned kind, so you won't have to remove engine to put it in, the hoses, which go into holes in tunnel and under same. Valve control for under seat, and the metal to mount that, the little tank for under seat. The tanks seem to go high for some reason. Hoses can be made or bought new. I would join the Yahoo PK group and ask around also. There is fella there named Larry Goss that sells thumbdrives with tons of info on models and parts for PK. You could get pix and manuals off of it on set-up and parts needed, and mounting a blade and etc. Great piece.

Thanks for all of the info! I would love to adda three point ot it, however it doesn't have the attachment points for it? Thats atleast what I was told my Mission Manufactoring. I also have more pictures, enjoy.

I pulled a stump a couple of weeks ago. Here is what I have.

Sizing up the competition. (The stump looks smaller than it actually is, also it is not rotted, it is petrified.)

Hooked up!

Well traction was not a problem until I hit the sand and the rooster tail started flying! Score: Power King 1 stump 1

Had to bring out the big boy to get rid of the stump. ( I wasnt kidding its a big stump. )

That is a big stump! I am not surprised the PK was able to do it. It would have pulled it through the sand if it had something other then turn tires on it!

I am probably going to add carlisle farm specialist R1 8x16's to it. My local dealer is closed for the weekend. So I will find out on Tuesday.
